Straddie...






Last night we had some friends over to our beach house at Straddie (Stradbroke Island) for dinner. It was a great night with lots of fun had by all. I thought I would show you a picture of the table setting and also some pictures of our house. I love spending time here in our little beach cottage with my husband and our son. We rent the house out for holiday bookings so please email me if you are interested in renting it.

Kim beat me to it! Gorgeous beach shack Anna. And to think everything had to go over on the barge!

Anna said...

Thanks guys! You should see the outside - we are saving up to paint it as it is currently a disgusting mustard yellow with green and maroon trims. Not a good look!!! I can't wait to paint it white!

Such beauty and comfort! Your photos never cease to inspire. I've slowly begun a small collection of blue and white jars and vases, too, and your use of these has given me wonderful ideas for them.

I miss the beach! I grew up with a beach house in Balboa, CA. Very old, built by my grandfather, one of the first on the penninsula. We spent every summer there. Your beautiful beach house brings back very fond memories!

Anna said...

THanks everyone for your lovely comments. We love spending our family time here!

What a gorgeous house!! Did you design it yourself all in one go, or did you have to add to it bit by bit over time?? Beautiful!
